Tell Us About Yourself

I am Memb Madeleine and I am from Cameroon.


What brought you to India?

I started having mild chest pain and breathlessness after physical exertion sometime ago. When these symptoms did not seem to tone down, I decided to get a complete health checkup to know the root cause from a good hospital. While exploring the internet, I got to know that India has some of the best hospitals that offer medical services. Hence began my hunt to find the best hospital in India for a good health checkup.

How did you choose the hospital for your checkup?

When I was searching for the best hospitals in India, I found out about Vaidam. After posting a query, one of the team members phoned me. The case manager helped me with the list of topmost doctors and their profiles, and also arranged the hospital opinions and associated quotes.


How was your visit to India arranged?

I went through all the information and decided to visit Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon. The Visa Invitation Letter was arranged by the team from the hospital. The visa application process was also done by the Vaidam team. They booked my accommodation as per my preferences. Even the pickup and drop off to the airport was not my headache.  


What was your experience at the hospital?

After I arrived in India, I was picked up from the airport and my appointment was scheduled with Dr Sumit Aggarwal. He took a detailed medical history and heard me patiently. He also conducted the physical examination and advised further investigations. After the reports came back, the doctor suggested to me that I would need heart bypass surgery.

This was certainly shocking for me and I could not think of the next step. But finally, I made up my mind to go for the surgery. Following this, the surgery was conducted at a scheduled time. I had to stay in the hospital for a few days after which I got discharged. I also had to stay in India for a month to follow up with the doctor. Since then, I have been recovering very well. 


Tell us about your overall experience of the visit.

Even though I came for a health checkup, I ended up having major heart surgery. The treatment in the hospital went well and successful. The entire staff was cooperative and helpful for all my requirements. Thanks to the team for supporting me emotionally when I had to prepare myself for the surgery.
